Healthy Habits at Hughes - news size

In an effort to address a major health issue across the country and right here in our community – childhood obesity – the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation awarded a $10,000 grant to Crouse Hospital to expand nutrition education activities at Hughes School. Wegmans is also participating in the school-year program with food donations.

 

The grant provides funding for a monthly after-school program to educate parents and children on how to move in the direction of better eating, specifically by using portion control and adding more fruits and vegetables into their daily diet.
